Psychotherapy can be a frightening word because “psycho” brings up images of Norman Bates and he is certainly someone none of us want to be associated with. The truth is that psychotherapy is just a fancy word for counseling. If “therapy” is used alone, people ask if it is physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc. A prefix was needed to distinguish it from other therapies and unfortunately “psycho” was chosen. Please don’t let the word stop you from seeking any necessary help you may be seeking. Needing help doesn’t mean you are crazy or that you are weak. We all need help at various stages of our lives and if you are in need now, please let me assist you. Call me at 714-751-0888.

I try to begin psychotherapy with a clean slate. By this I mean that I have my over 20 years of experience and training, but that I need to start all over again (to uniquely know you!) in terms of learning from the brand new patient what their world is like, what their struggles and symptoms are telling me to help guide us to help them find their way through their dilemmas, goals, and other important matters. I find that the therapy relationship gives us a unique perspective on what it is like to be who they are and look for clues in our work about what occurs for you in relationships, providing a way to learn about who you are in the context of our working relationship.

Psychotherapy is not anything to be scared of, or intimidated about. Seeking out a therapist or being in therapy isn't an admission of weakness or some kind of character flaw. Therapy is a collaborative process and a partnership with someone who is trained in and experienced with facilitating personal growth. And in this process, you are in the driver's seat. Our minds and emotions and relationships involve complicated machinery just like our bodies do and in the same way a medical doctor helps you stay physically healthy, Psychotherapy is designed to help you be and stay mentally and socially strong, and continually in a position to take on life's many challenges as your best self.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

Do you have a behavior, belief or irrational thought that you'd like to change? We often learn the "rules" of life from our family of origin. Sometimes it's believed that these "rules" are the truth; however, these "rules" are how we make it through our families. It is once these rules no longer work for us that we need to change them so we can live life differently and often better. It's not easy to make these changes but it is fully doable and I can help you with these changes. Let me help guide you. Start by calling me at 714-432-9856.

As life gets increasingly complex, occasionally we just need somebody to talk to… someone who cares, but who does not have a personal agenda with us… someone to bounce things off of, from whom we might acquire skills and tools that haven’t occurred to us, someone to walk with us as we sort things out. Psychotherapy gently facilitates the exploration and resolution of personal and/or interpersonal concerns according to our own specific individual needs and goals.
